Brrr....that looks cold!

It's Saturday, which means a new challenge over at Catch the Bug today! This is always a favorite among us crafters because it gives us some visual inspiration! You can choose to use the colors, the theme of the photo, the season....however this picture inspires you, we want to see it in your project!

This week's theme is a
Photo Inspiration
(See picture toward the bottom of my post)

My card features the Bugaboo Stamps AKV Winter - Snow Shoe image..
I used the frozen tundra in the photo as my inspiration.  Winter finally hit the Greenville area yesterday, with some temps in the twenties, and Winter Weather Advisories across the area because of a system that's bringing freezing rain in from over the mountains. Brrr...... I prefer the nice sunshine we just had!

My white snow is crimped woth a Fiskars Wavy Crimper, and layered to look like drifts - I tore the edges of each layer so it looked more like uneven snow.
My pine trees in the distance are a Memory Box Die. I cut it and used it as the very bottom layer, beneath the snow.
I created the sky using some Stampin' Up Ink - Tempting Turquoise and Pacific Point. My sponge daubers came in handy for that task. :0)
